How old are you Todd?
I found these in a Canadian Samsonite 9903 bucket from 1987. I would guess they would be originally from the 1970's. Has anyone seen these figures with multi colour bodies? The heads and arms are of course detachable but the two colour body bricks are one piece.
^ Thanks muchly CCC! I had an idea there must’ve been more classic space sets like the last two you show, but I had no idea about the arctic sets using maxifig arm pieces as hinges. Interesting that such a seemingly obsolete piece was used up until Y2K. I especially like #6579 as it really does confirm my childhood experimentation that the maxifig wrist joints are standard Lego ball/socket fits since they use a seemingly unrelated ball joint part to fit into the arm.EDIT: actually I just had to take a second look at #6573, not realizing they made an arm piece part where the other end is a technic connector. Cool!
